I have an 18 foot ski boat that I wanted to get back to my families cottage in Ontario from BC where I live. But because its over 20 years old, I didn't want to spend too much. I had a regular quote on a flatbed truck of $3400. I put the job on uShip and got a bid of $2500, to have it trailered...not quite the same process, but worked for me, Gerton Pot connected, and made it all work. He helped me make sure the boat was sitting properly on the trails, given it had a 4200 km trip ahead of it. He gave me an update on progress as he crossed the country, and also helped out by taking my skis in his truck. Everything made it on time, and the boat is there for my holidays! I would definitely use uShip again.
